A marital argument over a two-year-old incident resulted in a Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputy being called to the scene and the wife involved asking to be arrested.

According to the incident report, the deputy responding to the disturbance was informed the argument began over events that occurred two years ago. Once the argument began, the husband said he was going to Walmart, but his wife threatened to damage the vehicle to keep him from doing so. When he kept her from damaging the vehicle, the wife returned to their residence where she allegedly broke a “video switcher.”

The wife asked the deputy at the scene to take her to jail “for whatever he said I did” — in reference to her husband. When her husband told the deputy he did not want to press charges and did not want her to go to jail, the wife again told the deputy, “I want to go to jail.”

Her request was granted and she was arrested and charged with criminal trespass under the Family Violence Act.

Taser halts riotous inmate

Bartow County Sheriff’s Office deputies had their hands full while transporting a female prisoner to a holding cell Friday at the Bartow County Jail.

According to BCSO reports, Christa Lowe Brewer, of Rome, attempted to head-butt a deputy before pushing off against a wall within the jail.

The five deputies attempting to move the inmate took her to the ground in order to gain control of the situation where she continued to fight and allegedly kicked a deputy in the face.

A deputy then used his stun gun to tase the inmate, which enabled them to gain compliance and escort her the rest of the way to a holding cell.

Charges against Brewer include disorderly conduct, obstruction of an officer, simple battery on a law enforcement officer and riot in a penal institution. The riot charge was made due to her violent behavior in front of other inmates.
